I had my car stolen and due to residing in a small community it did not take long to find the individual responsible. I contacted LE, they attempted to contact the person, who had a lengthy criminal hx but they could not catch him at home so they just ignored my complaint. One evening I was watching the persons house to see if and when they would return home and they drove up in their driveway. Long story short I demanded my car back, the individual picked up a logging tie down chain and started swinging; I drew my firearm and told him to drop the chain, he quickly complied. The next day he filed a complaint against me for threatening him with a firearm, I was arrested and charged with intimidation with a weapon (I had a CCW permit) they confiscated my gun and put me on two years probation. Nothing was ever done about him stealing my car and it took me three years to get the charge expunged from my record which again gave me a clean criminal hx. The law works in strange ways.
